What are you going to do once your children are all grown up and out of the house?

Hubby and I have been talking about what we want to do 18 years from now, I know long way aways.... when the kids are out of the house. We have decieded we want to go on a Europe Trip and spend a year traveling the world, visiting different countries and what not. Hey maybe if we start saving now we might get to see at least some of it anyway. He's first choice is spending a year hunting in africa and canada. We've also talked about taking a bunch of different cruises... How will you spend your days??

  • We are in our 40's and have just our DS aged 2 years.

    Traveling the U.S. in an RV has been our dream since before our son. I hope we can do that.

  • We plan on living on a yacht in Brazil. I will live in my bikini, and we will drink fine champagne, and live in luxury. We're saving all of our riches for AFTER our child(ren) move(s) out.

  • My kids are 16 and 15 (well, dd turns 15 tomorrow). My dh has been in the Navy just a few months shy of 19 yrs. So, they will be moving out / going off to college around the time he retires from the Navy.

    We've spent all of our adult lives traveling around, so we're going to be settling down in one spot, and probably still traveling, since we do enjoy it :-)
